Action with Elves in Mirkwood Can't Post

The book describes how the elves were out hunting deer or similar animals in Mirkwood. However, I doubt they will take that route, with the dwarves blundering into their fairy ring multiple times. So, what will be the reason that the elves come across the dwarves (who apparently escape from the spiders right before their encounter with the elf patrol)?

It's pretty certain that it will have happened soon after the spider rescue by Bilbo, as evidence by the picture of Gloin covered in webbing being questioned and his family locket held by a presumably elven hand?



1. I favor that they might have been called out because of the goblin raiding party that came from the mountains, and continues to pursue the dwarves. They could be hunting spiders, but those are more incidental to the journey, and the dwarves are probably going to be lost when they get captured. This also give further credence to Thranduil being a bit upset at stirring up the orcs that pursue them into his domain. He's already upset that they won't tell him what they were doing in the forest.

2. Who will be leading the hunting party? Will we see Thranduil? Legolas & Tauriel? All of them?

3. If number 1 is correct, and it is orcs they are hunting, will we get to see any action? This was passed over in LOTR, where Haldir and Lorien elves wiped out a band of orcs pursuing from Moria, but it was cut from all versions. This might bring that idea back. Maybe it's a 'close call' but the elves don't know the dwarves are the target.


Thoughts?
